Summer Fiction Reads

Tanvi Home Session 2016 (40 of 60)

At the beginning of summer of 2016, I had shared my Summer Reading list. Looks like I have already read them all and then some. It is definitely more than I had anticipated to read this year. 

If you are interested in my view on the blog I read, you should check me out on YouTube. 9/10 times shares my views on the books there, as soon as I finish reading them. Below, however, in my latest book review:

  1. One True Love - Taylor Jenkins Reid - I had the most wonderful time reading this book. The story gets going from the first page and you are hooked. It was a great summer read which kept me engaged till it's last page. If you do read it, do come back and let me know who did you want the female character to end up with? 
  2. Finding Audrey - Sophie Kinsella - I have read all of Sophie Kinsella's books but this one might be the last that I read. 
  3. Who Do You Love - Jennifer Weiner - A coming-of-age story, which did not disappoint.
  4. Truly Madly Guilty - Liane Moriarty - This was my first book by this author and I had heard a lot about her book. It took a while for her to get the rhythm of the story going but by the end it was a satisfying read. It is a suspense thriller. 
  5. Before We Visit The Goddess - Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni - After a couple of months, I went back to a south asian author. Her book, Palace of Illusions is my favorite but I hadn't read any other work of her's. I truly enjoyed the story and how she had woven all the characters together. You can hear more of my view in the vlog above. 
  6. The Husband's Secret - Liane Moriarty - This was such a roller coaster ride. I enjoyed figuring out the plot. Unlike most mysteries, this one gets solved mid way through and the last half is about how people deal with the truth. So unlike any other mystery I have read before. 
  7. Oleander Girl - Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni - I often stick to the authors whose work I have heard about or already read. Easiest way to decide what book to read next. I am half way through this book and I already like it. It has a little bit of everything - romance, drama, suspense. I will share my thoughts post reading it on YouTube soon. 

Now on to the the Non-Fiction reads. 
I read three so far, and I have already reviewed two of them on YouTube

  3. You Are A Badass - Jen Sincero - Review coming soon on YouTube

  7. Love Sophia Kinsella books. Very nice selections. xx

  8. Finding Audrey and your are a badass are so on my reading list.Heard only positive about them. Do you buy all books or rent them?

    1. I do both! I buy some and rent some. Lately have been renting more since I have been reading WAY MORE than I usually do :)

  9. You're so good, I'm so bad. I just never developed a love for reading.. for whatever reason. The last book I read was Confessions of a Shopaholic and I loved it. :-) So at least I read one author you mentioned. :-)

    1. Hahah ... Well, I have my Mom to thank me for this habit. She made sure we read during all our free time. Hence there was never any free time :D
